I remember the first time I ever typed “haha” on AOL Instant Messenger.
It felt ridiculous.
I’ve always prefered to use proper grammer in any chat medium I’ve used, mostly so that I stay in the habit of writing the correct way, and also because many of the abbreviations and/or acronyms are ridiculous and absurd.
My most serious offense is the fact that I rarely capitalize when I’m chatting.
Laughing out loud.
Rolling on the floor laughing.
What the fuck.
Read the fucking manual.
The one I hate the most is “lol.” I had an ex-boyfriend once who “accidentally” said it out loud. Needless to say, that relationship lasted a mere two months.
“Haha” is as far as I will go to express my laughter, even when I do actually laugh out loud.

Here’s a bit of food for thought:rtfm is actually in reference to a *nix operating system.This is because most of linux is documented, since it’s a bitch of an operating to pick up sometimes. Whenever it’s used it’s usually in reference to someone asking a question about *nix.Example:A:What’s grep for?B:rtfm, you lazy bastard.
I don’t really give the references for any of the acronyms I list. The fact remains people use it, whether in context or no.
